Real-Time Translation Can Be Useful, But How Accurate Is It?
In today's information age, companies have a competitive need to communicate with their global customers in their own language. With the social media advancements, the urge to communicate in real time has become an ever-pressing expectation. Machine Translation has often been the center of controversy because we know it is useful, but how reliable is it?
Please join us for a complimentary seminar and luncheon on August 11th that will focus on how to incorporate localization best practices into your corporation’s Global Information Management (GIM) strategy. This seminar will provide best practice advice around global content and give you insights in:
Analyzing suitable content for Machine Translation
Intelligent Machine Translation
Assessing the solutions that best fit your organization’s goals
Additionally, you will have the opportunity to network and exchange localization knowledge with other industry leaders at a luncheon that takes place during the seminar. Space is limited so please register today.
